I expect this to be a more one sided affair than last week, especially if we play on a fine sunny afternoon on a dry track.
Given Brett Morris will be out for the foreseeable future with a fracture in his back (small transverse process fracture in his lumber spine, to be exact), I expect Ryan Hall to really step up and own this opportunity. He needs to finally get among the action with tries and get this monkey (or duck) off his back.
With Josh Morris now out as well, I am less confident than I was several days ago. Nonetheless, I think that we will still have enough firepower to win, especially on a dry SCG track. To me, our biggest danger is complacency. If we can keep that in check, I believe we will get home.
It is match day ladies and gentlemen. Fire up you mighty Roosters, fire up!
Well the Roosters only won by 6. It looked like they didn't get out of third gear. I thought they would have went for the try (instead for the 2 points) on a couple of occasions when the Titans were down to 12 men. Flanagan missed a pretty easy goal too.
I will add more, including thoughts, in coming days after I return home, when I am not only relying on my mobile device.
It was a very ugly but useful win, given our injury toll at the moment. JWH now also might be in some doubt for next week, with no certainty that either Boyd Cordner or Josh Morris will return for the Dragons game on Thursday.
We just need to hang tough and keep winning as best as we can until we come through the other side. Hopefully this proves to be a sign of a champion team.
I love that Ryan Hall only gets one pass per game. And this time, he dropped it!
The Titans, rather like the Broncs, have shown a steady improvement in recent weeks. A little more polish on their ends of sets, and they could easily have won this one. The Roosters should be concerned about the ease with which the Titans seemed to be able run around the outside of them. That is surely schoolboy defence?
